We all share many things in common, like love of comfort food (whatever that may mean to you) and love of all foods that are super fast and super easy, yet high on the delicious scale.
I never make complicated things when I’m having a ‘just us’ Shabbat, but somehow sheet pans full of flavor and color manage to appear. I can promise you one thing: they were not hard to throw together. It’s just about getting it all done on a short Friday!
I am lucky enough to have my kids in school on Friday until 2, so I usually take advantage of my Fridays by getting in a morning Zumba class. After that, there’s still some time to cook before the kids come home, but I do try to prep some on Thursday night, and I certainly do my main Shabbat shopping on Thursday.
Even with all that, I am always racking my brain for quick yet delicious things to make that are not more of the same in another variation. This week, we’ve collected recipes for your Shabbat menu that are exactly what I have in mind when I rattle off my punch list of Shabbat menu needs!
